One Punch Man (Episode 3)

It has been a long time since I last posted, my apologies. It has been a long 2 weeks for me, and a tremendously busy schedule has almost filled up all my hours. Let’s not waste any time, and look at the third episode of One Punch Man!!!

The Anime starts of with an introduction of a villainy scientist, along with how his humble origins. We learn that due to him becoming disillusioned with the world, and turned into weird thoughts/ ideas regarding evolution of humans. The scientist dream?: “We should not be striving to advance human civilization, but rather the artificial evolution of humans as a species.” His dream was pushed away by the masses despite his hard work, which made him dedicate himself to research, and only after reaching the age of 70, his efforts had began to yield results. He then used the findings to his own benefits. Firstly, he regained his youth. Next, he began cloning himself, and together with his clones, he named his laboratory the ” House of Evolution”. He then started to conduct countless experiments with animals to create new species, and it was not before long when he then used human subjects in his own evil experiments.

Now we are cut back into the present time where the monster, Armored Gorilla is being life threatened by Saitama and Genos-sama. With Saitama’s “no time to waste/ doesn’t like to listen to long stories”, the armored gorilla is asked to cut the story short to 20 words and below.🀣

Back to the present world, Saitama learns that this evil villian is very interested in his powerful body, and therefore plans to use his body (overpowered human being) to conduct research on evolution. In order to obtain his body, he sent armored gorilla to “capture” him.

Genos then suggested to attack the house of evolution, not allowing the scientist to try any new moves on them. Saitama then started brisk walking away, and tells genos that he could only do attack them as soon as possible today, as there is a sale going on tomorrow, and therefore he wouldn’t be able to attack them the next day. The armored gorilla still sits tight on the ground, watching them leave, before he uses an antenna on his head to warn the doctor that Saitama, along with Genos is heading his way. Genos then pops back, looking at him with stern eyes, asking the armored gorilla if there are any other cyborgs in the house of evolution, and whether or not they had a history of destroying towns in the past. (Should be pertaining to something encountered before/ he has eyes of revenge.)

Genos gets sensitive as he asks armored gorilla a question

The scene changes to the control center in the “House of Evolution” the evil scientist along with his clones are now discussing on the counter forces to stop/ deter Saitama and his disciple, Genos from attacking their laboratory. They made an analysis on their remaining elite forces (all wiped out), and the mad scientist states that they have no choice but to let out their trump card/ Carnage Kabuto. The atmosphere in the laboratory turns into a chaotic mess, with all the other scientist’s voicing their fears/ bad feelings about the matter at hand.

Saitama and Genos runs to the evil hideout as quick as they could, and they stood at the bottom floor of a run down building, situated nicely beside some rocky mountains. Before Saitama could finish counting the total number of levels in the building, his disciple wastes no time and immediately annihilates the building with one massive fire shot, bringing the building down in crumbles.


At the bottom of the building, there is something that looks like a metal bunker, and Saitama sensei easily rips the metal lid open slowly. In the basement, there is pin-drop silence, followed by the screams of a man in agony. His screams are amplified by the long and silent corridor, which looks as if there is no end in the passageway. The corridor is well lit, but the walls are all reinforced steel, which made the corridor appear dark despite the lighting.

The new monster is introduced. Carnage Kabuto, emits a dangerous aura around him despite being all chained up. He continues to kill one of the mad scientist’s clones. On the ground, multiple blood stains, along with torn clothes can be seen on the floor. (Probably from killing previous clones.) This time round, Carnage Kabuto meets up with the real mad scientist, and the scientist pleads him to help him to capture Saitama who is making their way into the facility. He then pleads him to capture Saitama, either died or alive, and states that only he could defeat him.

Carnage Kabuto grabbing firmly onto the mad scientist, and runs towards Saitama and Genos.

Genos senses the two living being that are approaching them, and asks Saitama to prepare himself. However, before Genos could react to Carnage Kabuto, he is crushed to the wall by his sheer speed, and the monster challenges Saitama to a fight in their combat experiment room. The monster states that he is the strongest monster in the whole of the house of evolution, and that since the fight is against Saitama, Genos wasn’t needed.

In the combat experiment room, before the fight could start, Genos steps into the arena shooting a blast of fire at Carnage Kabuto. Carnage Kabuto unharmed, just simply asks, “oh, you are still alive”, before outpowering Genos to another fight, rendering Genos with a curly like hair and a broken face, unable to fight.

Without wasting any further time, all the attention goes back to Saitama and the monster. Saitama feels motivated off his potential opponent whom might give him a great fight. The evil scientist looks at the battle between Carnage Kabuto and Saitama from the distance away, before the beginning of their fight, he expects Saitama either to lose, or to barely win with his current strength enabling him to cling on to the strand of his life. He stands away from any danger, looking at both of them with great anticipation with his eyes.

Carnage Kabuto runs on the walls of the room, and starts with attacking Saitama from behind him. However, before he cold land a blow on him, he immediately feels a chill run down his spine, and backs off, flying far into the corner with fear in his eyes. Saitama casually asks him what is he doing, and both the scientist and Genos were speechless. The scene shows us the inner-dialogs of Carnage Kabuto, where he realizes that although “He’s leaving himself wide open, yet all my instincts are screaming, sending out danger signals!” Carnage Kabuto immediately takes a deep breath in, and asks with a loud voice, “How the hell did you get that strong?!”

Saitama’s meme look

The facial expressions of Saitama then changed, (looks very serious), he also asks Genos to listen up, as he would reveal his secret for becoming this strong. With the atmosphere in the air becoming tense, and heavy, Saitama immediately changed the atmosphere with the most ridiculous answer of all, “One hundred push-ups! One hundred sit-ups! One hundred squats! Then a ten kilometer run. Every single day, eat three meals a day, a banana in the morning, and never to use the A/C or heater in the summer or the winter, so that one can also strengthen the mind.” He then states that after doing it for a year and a half, he immediately realized that he became bald, and had become stronger. He mentions that one must train like hell to the point where his hair falls out, to then become strong.

Carnage Kabuto gets angry from Saitama’s remark and turns into a different monster

When Carnage Kabuto becomes the different monster, he then gains an increasing amount of speed, an states that when he gets into Carnage mode, he would lose control for a whole week, and would also be more hungry for killing. He then says that after killing him, he would go into town and rampage until the next Saturday! This makes Saitama realized that he messed up his dates, and realized that today was a Saturday. He had missed the “Bargain day at the supermarket!!” This makes him angry and sad at the same time, and lands a punch on Carnage Kabuto, ending the fight in one hit.

Carnage Kabuto punches Saitama in all directions, not leaving Saitama with a scrath
Saitama not doing anything, and ending the fight with one punch (meme face)

The scientist just stands at the side of the room with broken, and tilted glasses, and he can’t believe his eyes. Genos immediately tells Saitama that he would be able to still make it to the supermarket, for if he hurries there, as the place is only four hours away. Learning about this, Saitama gets up on his feet, and wastes no time on the scientist. He doesn’t apprehend the scientist, and just punched through layers of the walls, leaving a straight path to the outside world.

Saitama’s overwhelming power

The scientist stands at the sight of the mess, and the “Great sale pamphlet” which Genos gave him. He immediately says that he is done with evolution, and that he needs to change his ways.

Re-evaluating Battle Game In 5 seconds (Final verdict)

Battle Game in 5 Seconds

The completed anime series Battle Game in 5 seconds, stands with high praises at the beginning of the sequel, showing us great visual artwork, along with a good sound effects, and a plot which is interesting. However, things have started to take a turn from the beginning of episode 10. Here is the final verdict after watching the completed anime series, along with my expectations I once had for the anime.

In the first few episodes of the anime, the storyline seems to be smooth and the flow/ breakdown of the storyline breaks down into each of those individual characters backgrounds, explaining why they do certain things/ how their actions are proved based on what they experienced since young. Most of the anime characters then gathers in a stadium from all walks of life, after they are all put through death, and fights with each other being granted with special powers.

However, in the last few episodes, most of the storylines are not carefully planned out, and it feels that the animation is placed together very quickly/ rushed, and the anime’s ending is too abrupt which doesn’t live up to the previous few episodes.

To illustrate my point, Here are some examples:

How can the tears of one guy still stay the same throughout a fight, also the transition of this fight is placed very shabbily together
The illogical and hurried finish led to cutting the anime short.

In episode 12, the final parts of the anime, the Main Protagonist dies in the Isekai world, and wakes up in his own comfy bed back in Japan. The anime suggests that everything that happened in all 12 of the episodes are just a dream of an ordinary Tokyo Boy that loves to play games, and the anime completes with a hurried ending/ shortened anime that is made to fit 12 episodes. The ending of the anime makes me question the previous episodes, and how illogical the anime storyline is.

For starters/ otaku and others, I wouldn’t recommend watching this Anime for it might ruin your day. If you enjoyed this type of content, do help me share this with your other Anime friends.πŸ˜€

One Punch Man (Episode 2)

Saitama meets with genos during a fight with a mosquito lady

Episode 2 starts off with a setting in One Punch Man’s home. The television is turned on, and the news is playing. There is however, no one in the room, and the news is talking about a massive mosquito outbreak that is going on recently. Apparently the mosquitos belong to an entirely new species, leaving even the professionals dumbfounded by the outcome. Now, our hero, One Punch Man dressed up in his home clothes, walks to his house balcony with a green watering can, and watering his plants outside. Inside, the news continues playing, and the broadcast is interrupted by disturbing news, where mummified remains of attacked farm animals have also been found near the area where the large swarm of mosquitoes are (City Z). The news then warns people to flee immediately if they were to see a large swarm of mosquitoes.

News from the television talking about the new breed of mosquitoes

Continuing to water is cactus, almost soaking it with water, a mosquito lands on our hero’s hand. He slaps it down using his powers hilariously, but to no avail. Our hero now getting annoyed continues to attack the mosquito at the speed of light.

The small mosquito goes unharmed by One Punch Man’s godly powers

The atmosphere then darkens almost immediately, and a swarm of mosquitos gathers like dark clouds in the sky. The emergency warning is then sounded, and the threat level was marked to be: Demon Level. All residents have to stay indoors, and no one is allowed to go outside under any circumstances. On the other hand, a white haired human with cyborg eyes stares at the cloud of mosquitoes with cold eyes. He wears a white singlet, with a pair of jeans, and stands openly at the top of the roof of a building. An electronic voice takes over, and says, “Acquiring Target”, and his golden yellow eyes looks deadly at the mosquito cloud. He was introduced as “The Lone Cyborg”. The scene then transitions to a man holding a metal pole, wearing a beanie, and with gloves on. He looks at the huge bag of items beside him, and smirks saying, “Thanks to that warning they’re all empty! Like someone’s gonna die from a mosquito bite. What’s losing a little blood if I get all this?” Few seconds after saying that, he gets jinxed, and a swarm of mosquitos covers him up entirely, sucking him of all his blood. He dies.

Daylight robber fears for the mosquitoes for his very life.

The blood is absorbed by a large human monster who looks a lot like a mosquito herself. She then tells the swarm of mosquitoes that that was too little blood, and asks them to look for more blood for her. She carries a huge intent of malice in her eyes, and flies in the sky with wings also like a mosquito. Continuing this scene is the cyborg who attacks the mosquito lady with a laser beam, shot from his hand. She just quickly evades his attack, and looks at him without talking. The cyborg now speaks to the mosquito lady, “I see, You make them suck the blood, then take it all for yourself. You must be controlling the mosquitoes via some sort of signal. That would explain their mysterious behavior.” He then asks if the cloud of mosquitoes would disperse if he kills her. The mosquito lady doesn’t care about him, and just says, “Our next meal is here. Go drain him dry.” The mosquitoes surround him, only to all be burnt into ashes by a blast of fire from inside out, when the cyborg just says, “Incinerate”. The cyborg then orders the female mosquito to stay where she is, for he would eliminate her. Not angered/ feeling threatened, she just stares back at him confidently, doubting his abilities, and asking him to give his abilities a try.

Mosquito lady nagging that she hasn’t has enough blood to drink

At the mean time, while the cyborg and the mosquito lady are still having a fight, One Punch Man is still trying to kill a single mosquito, and he gets very annoyed. When exchanging blows with each other, the mosquito lady manages to chop of one of the cyborg’s arms and the cyborg returns the favor, cutting off both the legs of the female mosquito lady. The mosquito lady gets more annoyed and angered as time passes, and flies higher into the sky, re-evaluating her options/ courses of actions she should take before the cyborg hero really gets her for good. Now, a larger wave of mosquitoes gathers around her, and giving/feeding her with more blood which have been drained from animals and wildlife that are in the forest, and the mosquito lady gets stronger.

The evolved mosquito lady which is red in color, boasting her purple hair

Before the cyborg could make a move to shoot at the mosquito lady, he was interrupted by our main protagonist, One Punch Man dashing iconically to the middle of the road. The holds onto a cannister of insect repellent and sprays at the mosquito from previously. He meets up with the cyborg who is in the street, and realizes the larger swarm of mosquitoes that are above him, gathered into a cloud. He looks hilariously devastated, not showing any signs of fear.

Saitama’s scared reaction

The cyborg asks him to evacuate immediately, so that he wouldn’t be hurt by the fight/ the mosquitoes. Our main hero, One Punch Man then says: “Seriously? That’s bad. I gotta get–“. Catching the cyborg off guard, the mosquito lady starts attacking the cyborg from behind, this time with much force and power, which shook the buildings, and the mosquitoes were spread all around the buildings, causing them to fall, and covering the cyborg, and our main protagonist up in mosquitoes, filling them up with darkness. Showing us the talents of the cyborg himself, he blasted all the mosquitoes away once again, this time with a larger and bigger explosion, causing the mosquitoes around the area to all be taken out by a large fire, which spreads around the city’s buildings, causing even greater damage to the city. Standing upright, with his clothes still intact, the cyborg then points his arm towards the lady mosquito, amidst the smoke and the dark buildings around him caused by the explosion previously. He mocks the lady mosquito for having low intelligence, unlike his expectations. He told the mosquito lady that she brought the mosquitoes together into one big, easy to burn swarm, and trash talks to the mosquito lady, making her furious, and dead set on killing the cyborg.

The cyborg’s blast which eliminated all the mosquitoes.

The cyborg then states that he made sure that there was nobody within 500meters of his blast, and before he could finish his statement, he recalls that there was a guy/ One Punch Man which was behind him just now. With his shirt all burnt up, and fully naked, our hero then thanks/ interrupts the cyborg’s train of thoughts, making the cyborg to disbelief. One Punch Man who was at the center of his blast didn’t get injured in any way, and was still standing and talking to him, and even telling him a joke about bugs.

Before they could learn more about each other, the mosquito lady returns and fills the air back with her evil aura and laughter. She then states how she is much stronger, and no longer needs the other mosquitoes, demonstrating how she quickly and easily cuts the building with a flick of her wrist. She asks the cyborg to take a look at how strong she has become, before she regains her rage, directing her gaze back at the cyborg, now focusing and attacking him.

Rendering the cyborg powerless with her new found power/ hyper-speed, the mosquito lady darts quickly behind the cyborg, attacking from all directions with ease. The cyborg then retreats away from the mosquito lady, flying high into the sky, before the mosquito easily catches up with him, and sends him with multiple blows, straight back down towards the ground. Before the Mosquito lady could land her final blow on the cyborg/ the cyborg deciding that he should self-destruct, our main hero, One Punch Man slaps the mosquito lady towards a wall, with speeds that are of the charts, and ending the fight with a single blow of his. The cyborg was shocked speechless with his attack, and has jaws dropped witnessing his powers. One Punch Man just stood there, saying: “Mosquitos…suck!”, again away from harms reach.

The cyborg attempts self destruct, so that the monster will also be caught in the blast
Hardest bitch slap of all time

Collapsing on the ground, the cyborg then asks One Punch Man for his name, and asks him if he could be Saitama’s/ One Punch Man’s disciple. Saitama agrees, and walks away, not expecting anything much.

The bitch slap which split the clouds

Taking a deep breath, the cyborg stands outside the residence of Saitama’s and calls out Sensei. He greeted by Saitama who looks frustrated at the door, hoping that he wouldn’t turn up. The cyborg introduces himself as Genos. Saitama asks Genos to stop calling him his Sensei, and gets called master, hilariously which Saitama also told him not to call him that as well.

Saitama’s annoyed look of frustration

Inviting Genos into his apartment, he treats Genos a cup of traditional Matcha-green tea, telling him that he should go back home after finishing the tea, as he is not looking for any disciples. Saitama then looks at Genos, and asks him how he manages to get back into shape from before. Learning that Genos is a cyborg, and that most of his parts are mechanical, and easy to replace, Saitama thinks that Genos is an odd human. Genos then hilariously asks what parts does his Master use, only to be responded that he is a human. Genos who is still in disbelief then asks him what about the skin-colored armor on his head, learning that Saitama’s bald even at a young age, angering Saitama with one of his biggest insecurities.

Saitama’s reaction when someone comments of his bald head

Back at what looks like an evil villain’s hideout/ laboratory, a frail and skinny looking man sits back alone in the darkness, in his room. His room is partially illuminated by the brightness of the computer hologram screen, and he is talking about how the Mosquito girl is just a prototype, and that it is fine that she gets defeated by a single hit. He learns of that the hero/ One Punch Man, is the one that defeated the Mosquito lady, along with a picture of him naked in the streets. He then answers the phone call on his desk stop saying that he would study the hero’s physiology, even if it means that they have to subdue him by force. He asks the person in the computer to send a messenger to invite him to the laboratory/ their “House of Evolution”.

Transitioning the scene back to Saitama’s residence, Genos asks Saitama how to be as strong as he is, and Saitama agrees to take him in as a student, saying that his training wouldn’t be easy/ not mere talk. Before Genos could learn more about Saitama sensei, he moves towards the apartment hallway at fast speeds, stating that he had detected an object approaching towards them at high speeds. Genos early warning is correct, and it was followed by a crash on top of Saitama’s house/ ceiling. This time around, it is a giant praying mantis monster that Saitama’s punch killed, for destroying his house’s ceiling, and the other 2 more monsters that were observing Saitama’s residence outside are hammered into the ground also by him. Genos wanted to show off his skills, only to get the spotlight taken from him by Saitama Sensei. Not before long, 2 other monsters, that looked more powerful attacks Genos and Saitama, saying that they are the best amongst the other House of Evolution’s other beast, and they too get beaten to a pulp. Armored Gorilla(Monster) takes on Genos, and the Beast King/ Lion takes on Saitama.

Save your breath for the fight ahead mate…

Saitama hilariously asked the Beast King to hold on to his grand introduction, saying that he has dirt caught between his belt and his shirt, and after a few seconds later of dusting his belt, the Beast King flexes his muscles and grits his teeth. Fumes can be seen emerging from the gaps between his sharp teeth, and his eyes glows a malicious bright red in color. He continuously slashes Saitama, only to realize that Saitama greatly outpowers himself, only when he dies, after One Punch from Saitama. Saitama then proceeds on to take out the smaller and annoying monsters that are around the area, assisting the beast.

Saitama’s: Consecutive Normal Punches
Saitama taunts the mole which is burrows underground, saying that it can’t hide.

On the other end of Genos’s fight, he manages to subdue the Armored gorilla, striping him of his armor, and making him confess who was the one that sent him here. He states that he is extremely sorry, very hilariously, in fear that he would be killed. He asks to be spared.

Armored Gorilla fears for his life.

Is Western culture affecting Japan Anime & Manga?

Commonly when we watch Anime, there are some scenes and environment settings from Western and the European culture. However, are they helping the growth in Anime? Or is something bigger happening behind the scenes, where western culture might be affecting Japan’s Anime in the most subtle way, slowly but surely.

Looking at statistics, the viewership for anime has increased over the years, marking a 23.56 billion USD market with an annual CAGR growth rate of 9.5%. When cross tallying with American movie broadcasting companies such as Netflix, there are also more animes being streamed on these platforms, and anime viewership in the U.S. is the highest when compared to the world. It is no wonder that some anime titles are now trying their best to cater to the western viewers, and here are some examples that are in anime.

1) Sports based Anime depict the physical capabilities of athletes in the States rather than athletes in Japan itself

Watched Haikyuu/ Kuroko no Basket/ Yowamushi Pedal? These sports anime who have athletes competing in competitions rarely show us the reality of Japan’s true athletes. However, this can be understood as Animes try their very best to add more action/ to give the Anime more dramatization. In my opinion, there isn’t much of a problem here, but some minor changes could definitely be done to add more realism into the anime. (e.g. character progressions and how specific sports moves were executed after training.)

The over-exaggerated air time in the Basketball anime (Kuroko no basket) helps build emotions and adds drama/ everything in slow motion.

Definitely, some of the Basketball moves featured in the anime are fun to watch, however when comparing it towards real life examples, we realize where the anime creators got their ideas from. (p.s. it’s from NBA)

2) Animes are made with 2 versions, 1 dubbed and the other is english sub

For most of you weeaboos/ otaku out there, maybe you might have already realized long ago, that most Animes come in two different versions in your streaming provider. One main example is how the popular anime title: Naruto Shippuden is created with 2 different voice actors. One made for the English community. There is nothing left to chance, and most of the English voice actors have to go through trainings and a tough selection process, before being able to voice act for their particular animes.

Popular anime series Naruto has as much as 5 different voice actors for just Naruto alone. This adds on more realism in the person’s voice during voice acting and thus the popular title.

Languages for this anime include English, Japanese, German, Italian and French. The most popular of which is Maile Flanagan who is a lady, and has a unique voice when voice acting for Naruto.

However, not all anime are catered for the international community/ don’t have enough finances to hire twice the number of voice actors for the anime series.

3) Openings and endings now have an english name, so that viewers can easily find the songs on Youtube

Jujutsu Kaisen opening (Kaikai Kitan), by Eve
Kekkai Sensen Ending (Sugar Song and bitter step), by Union Square Garden

The list continues, and there are too many examples for this. I think you guys as otaku’s/weeaboo’s will understand.

4) Fantasy animes with Magic in them are very similar to western based movies

For those that have watched reincarnation based anime, where the protagonist gets into another world outside civilization, dragons and knights based of anime. Popular series: That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, Overlord, … … and many more … …

Magic circles that look like voodoo/ a witches spell
Popular scene from the anime Mushoku Tensei features magic that is similar to western culture

5) Western countries being more involved with the production of Animes

Ever heard of Netflix/ funimation. Those popular American media streaming companies are trying their best to get more anime out into the market, and trying to get a piece of the pie in the anime market. Popular anime titles such as: Naruto, My hero Academia, Demon slayer, Black clover and Haikyuu are also being streamed by Netflix.

In addition to the western communities trying to get a pie on the anime market, most western countries started to get involved with the production of the anime too. Visual effects teams, voice actors and even animes made entirely out of the Japan market/ completely made in America (Title: castlevania), can be seen around the states, with the trends spreading like fire.

There is nothing wrong with the western community affecting the market, and it is pretty welcomed by the world too. For otaku’s/ weeaboo’s out there who wishes to watch more Anime with more of the Japanese context in it, there are many titles out there for you. Here are some of our main recommendations.

  • Jujutsu Kaisen
  • Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
  • Saiki Kusuo no Ξ¨ Nan
  • Naruto Shippuden
  • Noragami
  • Ansatsu Kyoushitsu
  • Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san

Happy animation, happy otaku’s. Hope you guys enjoyed the anime recommendations and started to look at anime in a new light. Please consider subscribing, it would help out a lot.πŸ˜€

Mushoku Tensei, an honest review (Anime & Manga)

The age of reincarnation anime has just blossomed, and starting to take shape. This is mainly due to stories that are written with overpowered main characters/ (OP MCs) for short, which lacks in character progression/ doesn’t show how the character levels up/ gets stronger to where he is at. However, adding in character progression means that more anime episodes must be included/ more manga series has to be drawn. Among all of those reincarnation animes that are out there, Mushoku Tensei piques the interest of anime viewers, and therefore, here is an honest review about the anime after watching it. We will try our best to include any spoilers for this anime, and will also give you insight on the technicalities of the anime, and probably appreciate the content more.

Art and Animations

There are multiple aspects of the animation which I like. Firstly, attention to detail was hugely emphasized. There were multiple scenes where there were extra details such as the heat waves, the outline shadows, the lighting of the anime. Next, this anime carries a large amount of fan service, where panties, and breast groping are drawn in details. That might be a reason why this anime is welcoming a second season.

Picture showing us the art of the anime which is considered to be of mid-level quality. Picture shows a concrete building with brown ceiling tiles, with a tree in the foreground. Image is slightly altered to fit the snowy setting.
Art of the anime is rather detailed, showing us even the sllightest details, wall textures and lines (Snow man at the bottom however is not drawn well, and we are able to see extra lines behind the snowman/ the walls behind the snow man)

The lighting effect of the anime showing darkness and heat very well.

^ Lots of fan service. (Targeted for males)

Transitions and Effects

Blur filter applied to the background of the image, highlighting/ directing our attention to the main protagonist dancing with a girl, in a old looking ballroom.
A blur filter applied to the other background people, giving us a focus of the Main protagonist (like an actual movie)
Animation played at 0.8 times speed, still smooth and well animated

Voice acting and Background Sound/ Music

There are no major flaws in the Voice acting and the Background sounds of the anime. They are rather smooth, despite some repetitions in the ost in the background. However, most of the Background Sounds and Music are very repetitive. Much more could be done to improve the Background Sounds of the Anime to make it stand out from the regular ones, and we shall not criticize it any further.

Storylines and Plot

Following the isekai genre of animes, this anime is very similar, showing us how the main protagonist has godly powers from a young age, he retains memories of his previous life when he is born as a baby in this new world, and thus it benefits him since young. However, this anime doesn’t show us how overpowered the Main protagonist is, in fact, they shows us how much potential he has. This allows us to also follow up on the protagonist growth throughout the anime, and how he has improved through the years since the time when he was born. This anime succeeds in giving us the realism feels of when some one reincarnates into another world, filled with swords and dragons. In terms of storyline, it has faired rather well, and we would be looking forward to the second season of the anime said to release on fall 2021. Hope you guys watch the anime.

One Punch Man (Episode 1)

serious looks

We are starting to review another Anime/ the popular One Punch Man. This review will review Episode 1, season 1 showing us the humble beginnings of One Punch Man. Enjoy!

The anime first starts with a peaceful atmosphere, showing us a clear blue sky, along with the shades of the trees. Birds can be heard chirping. Now, the scene transitions with the sounds of fast moving shadows, and the heavy atmosphere in a city. The city buildings, trains and streets are bustling with people and cars, showing us a peaceful day.

Suddenly, there are explosions seen at the far background of the city, and the whole city is devoured by an orange light from the source of the explosion. There are puffs of black smoke in the sky, and the atmosphere suddenly turned panicky. People started running away from the explosion hurriedly, and many others are looking at the explosion zone from far. Most of them have eyes filled with fear in them. Now, another shockwave came from the explosion zone, and the ground started trembling. Many started to lose their balance, and the heat waves con be seen radiating from the ground. With this, the anime transitions into a weird looking human/ monster, with eyes of malice.

The monster then leaps into the air, taking flight. He wastes no time, and created plasma like orbs, and started firing them at the city causing mayhem, and buildings to be destroyed. In as dark room, with high technology equipment and computers, staff/ military personnel started deploying hero members immediately to the scene. It was very clear that they were prepared for this disaster to happen, and immediately started providing counter measures for what seemed to be an act of villainy from a monster. They analyzed the threat levels of the situation, along with nearby heroes that could come to the aid of the situation.

A newscaster nearby, who knows no fear, starts a news report about the nearby area, and starts amplifying the damage left by the monster. Behind were people in the cities running away as fast as they can. This the transitions to a television screen/ channel that a bald headed man is watching. The bald headed man watches the live broadcast, and learns that City A is under attack. The television channel then starts to darken, losing it’s connection with the world. The bald head man then mutters the words, “Guess I’ll go”. Echoing footsteps can be heard, and the bald headed man wearing a cape walks into the light. He then strikes a cool looking pose, flipping his cape like a hero.

There you go, our main protagonist standing in the light.

The hero, dashes at the speed of light, saving a girl from eminent danger. She was crying for her parents, and before the evil monster could crush her in his hands, the hero grabs her, and puts her away on the ground. The monster introduces himself as the vaccine man, and reasons his actions for destroying the city. He asks the hero who he is, only to be replied, “I’m just a hero for fun.” This angers him, and he transforms into a hell of a monster. Threatening our hero. Our hero hasn’t said a single word, and stands there, unmoved by the monster. He punches the monster, only to take him out in one punch, ending the threat in the most anti-climatic ways possible. He blames himself for only ending the fight with one punch, and is very sad he didn’t get to have a proper fight that could satisfy him.

Hero finishes the fight in just a punch.

After the anime opening, what a great opening. The scene redirects us to 3 years ago. A man wearing a business suit with unfazed eyes, looks at a monster. The monster has a top of a mecha-crab, and has pincers for his arms and hands. His eyes are that like a crab, and his legs are of a human. The man, uninterested by the monster, then takes a sigh, and communicates with the monster like a normal human. He says that he is not an ordinary business man, but just a man that is unemployed, thereby looking for a job. He then says how he got rejected in an interview again today, and couldn’t care about anything around him. The crab man then lets him go, seeing his lifeless eyes that are also similar to his in some ways. The crab man then states that he is also going to hunt a different prey/ a big chinned brat (he calls it that way). The man then walks in opposite directions away from the monster. On the way home, at the playground, the man met a child who has an exceptional big chin, almost comically funny. He then recalls about what the crab man told him, and fears for the safety of the child. He has shivers down his spine thinking that the crab man’s target was a child.

He then asks the kid if he has messed with a big crab monster earlier, only to hear from him that he did draw 2 nipples on the big crab monster for fun. The business man had a bad premonition as to what was going to happen, and started to think what he should do. He considers the option of walking away, given how ugly the child was, and thinks that it was none of his business. He walks away, only to come back to save the child from being attacked. The crab man almost killed the child. The business man regrets his actions, and blames himself for being over considerate for the child. He then realizes that it was too late to turn back now, and that he had no choice but to fight with the crab monster, buying some time for the kid to run away. He instructs the kid to run far away, and not to worry about him.

The crab man then engaged a verbal war with the man, asking the man to step aside, giving him a last chance to live. It was only greeted with the man’s laughter, filled with mixed emotions. He then says how the crab man looks like the villain from an anime that he used to watch, before he gets to finish his statement, he is sent flying several meters away, landing into a nearby garbage chute. The child looks at him, and realizes the eminent danger posed to him. He takes a look at the monster, who now prepares to take a swing on him. The monster then says, “Die” and the child crawls helplessly away. All attention is then directed at the man, who now starts to throw stones at the monster, trying to defend the child from the eminent danger. The man who is now bleeding says, “In this age of declining birth rates, I can’t just let you kill a kid.” He continues saying that since young he wanted to be a hero, and not an ordinary office man. He grits his teeth, tosses his jacket aside, and wraps his clenched fist with the tie he is wearing. He immediately says, “he wants to be a hero to send rotten villains like him flying with just one punch. Screw looking for a job, Bring it on!” The crab man, who is now pissed that the man punches him with full force, accepting his challenge, and beating sense into him, making him bleed profusely. Before the villain can attack the man again, he dodges his attack, and climbs on top of his arm, and jumps to where his eyes are. He then uses the tie that is on his arm, and pulls crab man’s eyes away from it’s head. His eye then reaps apart, and crab man bleeds profusely through his eyes. The ugly child just stands there the whole time, in awe.

The man pants heavily standing beside the corpse of the crab man. Now the scene transitions back to the hero from earlier, holding onto a packet of crab pincers packaged nicely in a departmental store. He recalls how he trained so hard since that they, till he has now became bald. He also states how powerful he has become till no one could beat him. He says that he has already became the hero he has dreamed of becoming. On this train of thought, he wonders why does his heart feel so empty despite how accomplished he was, and proceeds to buy the crab pincers at the cashier. The ground then starts rumbling below him, and the lights of the store flickers crazily till it went off. One Punch Man/ hero still unaffected proceed to count the coins that are in his coin pouch, to make a payment. When he looks up, the cashier is long gone, and he is alone by himself in a dark lit store. A giant villain crushes the store, and destroys everything in it’s way, leaving a footprint, stepping on multiple areas at once.

Destroying the city with just its footprint.

Stepping out of the destroyed store, and looking up, One Punch Man sees the big giant walking through the city. At the giant’s right shoulder is a normal sized human, dressed up as a scientist. He right hand holds onto a test tube, and his brother is the giant. He looks contented that his brother is destroying the city, and thinks that it was too wonderful. The close up shot of the test tube was featured, and his brother says,”I never thought it would work so well.” His giant brother agrees, recalling his past where he remembers of how hard he trains to be the strongest man in the world back when he was still a human. He lifts weights, and has an ambitious gym routine. At the same time, his brother who is a made scientist has just completed the ultimate steroid, “Biceps King”, for his brother. He presents the steroid to his brother, who then drinks it down, and mutates into a giant right before his brothers’ eyes.

The scientist brother who is standing at the shoulders of the giant then laughs loudly at the destruction of the city caused, and how they have succeeded to combine the greatest mind with the strongest body. He ambitions to conquer everything on earth, and to rule as kings. The giant then waves his arms towards the buildings in front of him, producing a strong air wave, and destroying the whole of the city, in an instant. While that was going on, the cities nearby has already sounded its emergency evacuation warnings, ensuring that the people living in the area are safe. A helicopter flying at higher altitudes then surveys the destroyed area to see, and save the remaining survivors that are buried under the ruble.

Streets are packed with cars, trying to escape away from city D, where the giant is at, and they are informed that the giant is currently heading towards City B. The people in the city are all panicking and the atmosphere was no longer filled with fear. It was filled with silence, most of the city is already destroyed. The scene changes to show us One Punch Man that is now standing emotionless on the giant’s shoulder. He casually asks the giant how it feels like being the strongest villain, and gets interrupted by the mad scientist, asking his brother/ giant to kill the person on his shoulder. The giant being a muscle head then crush his brother which is also on his shoulder (right), leaving One Punch Man dumbfounded, and turning the atmosphere into a hilarious one.

Giant looks at his hand realizing that he has crushed the wrong person

The giant turns angry, and grabs our hero, throwing him onto the ground, and stepping on him angrily. He consecutively punches One Punch man that is lying on the ground, and keeps emphasizing the power of his brotherly love, and venting his anger of his brother’s death, on our hero, blaming his death on him. He creates a big crater in the earth’s ground, where our hero is at, and stands upright triumphantly, thinking that he won the battle. He then looks at his hand, and feels sentimental for his lost of his brother, and feels that it was useless being the strongest, as it is pretty lonely. The hero then agrees with him, flying out of the crater the giant has placed him into, and gave him a few punches. The gave him the final blow, causing him to fall, and land on City B, our hero/city destroyer hilariously just says oops.

One Punch Man punches giant

Transitioning to the next scene, One Punch Man walks out from a convience store. He ponders about how Monsters/ evils of the world still kept on appearing even after he became a hero, and thinks that he hasn’t made a significant impact to the things around him. He wasn’t disappointed about that, however the thing that bothered him more was his emotions becoming more and more distant from him, and he seems that he wasn’t able to feel the feelings of a regular human. Fear, tension, joy, anger is slowly slipping away from him as the days go by. He things that in exchange for power, he might have lost his sense of emotions. He realizes that as he only needs one punch to end any fight, he always go back home uninjured, even when he is fighting against monsters who looks powerful, he never felt as if his heart was really in the fight.

One Punch Man taking a bath.

Early in the morning, his sleep was interrupted by a monster whom destroys his house, and grabs onto our hero, throwing him out of his house. He introduces himself as the “true earthlings”, and says that he is a subterranean. As they are suffering from overpopulation below the earth’s crust they have come to the surface of the earth, trying to eradicate the humans that are living on the surface, making place for themselves to live instead. He states that this was a battle, and starts a war with him. He was surprised, at our hero’s powers, saying that there was no one that could survive their attacks, and he was the first earthling that has the powers to still stay standing. One Punch Man then says, “Same here. It’s been too long since I’ve come across such worthy opponents, Subterraneans!” He then punches him, causing the monster to explode, and his blood to spill everywhere behind him. Now, the other monsters/ Subterraneans runs towards him, and he engages them in a 1 vs ??? battle with many off them. While attacking and defending against their attacks at the same time, our hero’s eyes are re-ignited with fire, and the fight continues leaving our hero happy about, and passionate about the fight.

One Punch Man engaging a fight with the other monsters, all at once

One Punch Man gets punched, and the impact of the punch carries him away causing an explosion when he lands. The subterraneans monsters then thinks that the battle was over, only to be still surprised that our hero was still standing after the fight, and him now acknowledging the monster’s abilities. He introduces himself as a guy, who’s just a hero for fun, and emerges from the flames that are behind him. He stays standing, and says that he won’t lose any battle, leaving the monsters with no choice but to attack him, as the surface is under “his protection”. The monsters goes against our hero all at once, with all their might. Finally, at last, our hero manages to feel a wild throbbing in his heart, the rush and the tension he gets from a fight, and goes all out fighting the monsters. He enjoys the fight, and says that it has been so long since he has felt this exhilaration of a real fight. Standing above all the subterraneans’ bodies, and feeling the rain pelting down on him, he remembers the feelings he experienced when fighting monsters 3 years ago, and wants to continue fighting them, trying to look for his long lost feelings, only to be found through fighting those monsters.

One Punch Man finally finds his emotions
One Punch Man running towards the Subterranean King

The Subterranean King now appears above the surface of the ground, challenging our hero to a fight, knowing that he has killed all his “children”. On the other hand, instead of feeling afraid of the monster, our hero just rushes to the monster, hoping to get a nice fight which he always longs to have. He then jumps and towards the monster, only to realize that everything he wanted was just a dream. He hears some monsters causing a ruckus below his house, and jumps out of his house window with his suit on. He hammers the monster’s down, and asks them to bring on the fight, only to see them raise a white flag, and that he doesn’t get the fight that he wants.
